Fire Department Citation

Fire Department Citation

When a certified fire safety inspector (CFSI) finds that the Ohio Fire Code (OFC) or an associated order has been violated, the CFSI must issue a citation.  Citations must be issued with "reasonable promptness" and must be in writing. 

For additional citation requirements, please see Ohio Revised Code (R.C.) Sections 3737.42 through 3737.51 and OFC Section 109. 

The downloadable "Fire Department Citation" provided here encompasses these citation requirements and is an example citation that CFSI's may edit for their specific jurisdiction and use when issuing R.C. Section 3737.42 citations.   

For questions regarding how to fill out the form, CFSI's should contact their legal advisor.
